After listening to political rhetoric about who is making what for speeches and how some are making ‘big time’ money and it’s true, according to my research team….me..
Here are my findings:
Bill Clinton receives about $225,000 for a speech (some much higher) and in 2011 (the last year where info is available), he made over $13 million for speeches.
Hillary Clinton has made nearly $12 million since her years as Secretary of State and has received as much as $300,000 (maybe more) for some speeches.
Donald Trump, $250,000 per speech, with a high of at least $450,000
George W. Bush averages $100,000 to $175,000 and has deposited over $30 million since 2009.
Other speakers and their income per speech (all vary)
Former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani-$270,000,
Sarah Palin – $115,000 in 2011
Condoleeza Rice – $150,000.
Chelsea Clinton – $75,000.
Dick Cheney – $75,000.
Mitt Romney – $68,000.
Newt Gingrich – $60,000.
Colin Powell – $50,000.
Liz Cheney – $20,000.
So who would you like to hear? Show me the cash.
Saw where President Reagan was paid over a million for a speaking tour in the far east after he departed the White House.
Incidentally, the salary of a President is a measly $400,000, or was.
Needless to say, the speaking tour can provide huge bucks and there must be a market for speakers.
Ever look back and think about regrets? rights/wrongs? Life is not without challenges.
He who is without sin let him/her cast the first stone.
